  2. General Chat
    Hi everyone, I apologize if this was already posted somewhere else. I came across this website about the Amish and their way of life. Some interesting articles about daily life, challenges they face (i.e. economy, population, settlements relocating etc.), lots of pictures too. amishamerica.com...
  3. Kitchen Basics
    I've had an Amish cookbook for years but pulled it out yesterday to read. I have always thought the Amish were very self reliant, didn't depend on the "English" for anything if they can make it themselves. I noticed in MANY recipes they called for canned items, like soups, canned fruit, instant...

    I have a starter of an Amish friendship bread on it's 5th day. I've done them before, but I was kind of looking for something different to make out of the starter, or maybe a different variation of the bread. I have made the standard bread and have made 'Herman' biscuits (didn't like them...

    Amish White Bread Recipe DescriptionI gave this a try tonight and used all-purpose flour instead of bread flour. The result? A heavier bread with some rise to it, but it was very heavy. Two slices would make for a great snack, especially while still warm. It's sweet, also...
  7. Discount Stores
    Ok I know this isn't an actual discount store but I love it. If you have any Amish near you who have opened up a discount store on goods such as dented cans, crushed boxes, expired sell by date items, and overstock I strongly suggest you check them out. Here is what I bought today 4...
  8. Baking Breads
    I once received a ziploc bag with batter in it. You keep the batter for 7 days, letting the air out of the bag daily, and then bake it. Somehow, there's some left, which you pass on to a friend. It was called Amish Friendship Bread (I think). It was very sweet and tasty! I'd like to get it...
  9. Pumpkin
    I made pumpkin-nut bread today using my Amish Friendship Bread starter. I followed the regular/generic Friendship Bread recipe and added a small can pumpkin and 1/2 cup chopped walnuts. I made 3 smaller loaves so I can give them away. I don't know too many people here yet, so I use the...

    I have a batch of Amish starter in a ziplock on my counter... this is my third round with this stuff. I've been "smushing" the bag daily as directed. However, I completely forgot to feed it on Saturday, which was day 5. Can I feed it today and still use it? Or is the whole batch trash...
  12. Baking Breads
    I had gotten an amish bread starter a while back, and although DS and I liked it, DH was not so impressed. (We ended up using it for french toast, which he suffered through!) I just recieved another one! I have to make this one sometime tomorrow. Is there more than one recipe to use the...

    For years I have been interested in the amish lifestyle and I have read a lot about it. I would very much like an amish pen pal in order to learn more about their way of life. If possible a woman about my age (39). Does anyone here have amish friends who might be interested. Thanks, Lisette

  15. Kitchen Basics
    I'm not sure if this is where this recipe should go, but it uses very basic ingredients so I put it here. I got this recipe off of Allrecipes.com last week and tried it out. I LOVE it. It's very simple and literally melts in your mouth. The cookie dough wasn't much to talk about (ok, I'm bad, I...

    i've been reading back through some of the old threads looking for some new reciepes to try. There is one for an Amish Friendship Bread starter. I remember someone giving me a starter years ago and was it ever yummy!!!! The question: As the days pass and you're stirring the milk, sugar, yeast...

    These all sound delicious. Years ago I lived in rural northwest Oklahome where there is a large Mennonite community and the dishes that they made and brought to socials and community events were delicious. These are similar to some that they brought. Amish Coffee Cake 2 c. light brown sugar 2...

    Has anyone seen this series?  I started watching it a couple of weeks ago and I'm not sure yet if I like it or not.  It's made me cringe a couple of times with the cruel way the two groups interact with each other but I guess that's normal at that age. Anyone else watched it?

    I just for the first time went to an Amish Bulk Foods store and I was blown away! They have the mixes for making all kinds of soups, brownies, and lots of other stuff for so much cheaper than any grocery store. This is going to change the way grocery shop plus I feel great supporting the local...
